Review: 738 Days by Stacey Kade

I don’t think I’ve read a story plot this deep or thought provoking as this one in a long, long time. My brain muscles are still un-cramping from all the thinking and flat out speed reading I’ve done in the last two days. This is just one of those stories that doesn’t have a good place to stop, regroup, and circle your thoughts back around.

Review: Captured by Jennifer Chance

The first book in Jennifer Chance’s Gowns & Crowns series was all about the Prince finding his Princess and all that fairytale romance mushy stuff, with a bit of intrigue added in. Well holy smokes did Ms. Chance ramp up the intrigue. She added in a whole lot of suspense to this second book in the series. It was almost as if Intrigue walked up to Romance and asked it to dance.

Review: The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan

This entire series has been an addiction with me. I read Drew’s story in The Hook Up and was floored by the amount of PLOT in the romance. I pounced on Gray’s story in The Friend Zone. So there was no looking back when I could finally, FINALLY (yes, I am screaming) know what the heck is going on in quiet Dex’s mind.

Review: Embraced by Jus Accardo

Jus Accardo is finally back with the second book in her Eternal Balance series. To say I jumped all over this as soon as I saw this available to read and review would be an understatement. This is a story that has actually stuck with me after two years!

Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

It’s Fall and that means FOOTBALL around my parts! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my lazy afternoon with my sick son than re-reading All Broke Down by Cora Carmack and dreaming of Ohio State Football Saturdays of past.

What’s New with New Adult? Guest Post by Jennifer Chance with Review and Giveaway

Being a fan of Jennifer Chance’s adult contemporary Rule Breakers series, I was beyond excited to be able to feature her brand new New Adult series Gowns & Crowns. I’ve been sitting on this post for weeks, excitedly waiting to share it with everyone because it’s such a timely subject both with her new book, Courted, and the direction the New Adult “genre” has gone in last year or so.

Review: Once Pure by Cecy Robson

So, I’ve let yet another book sit, stew, and not get reviewed properly. Story of my life lately, huh? I remembered the story, I looked over my notes, but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t abundantly love Once Pure. I needed to investigate this! So I re-read the book. Here comes the conundrum: what review do I write?

Review: Undaunted by Ronnie Douglas

As soon as I figured out that Ronnie Douglas was Melissa Marr, I had to know what she was going to do with the new adult genre. Especially because she noted that she wrote from experience on her Ronnie Douglas website. Sounds like fun to me!

Review: The Moment of Letting Go by J.A. Redmerski

I want to recommend this book to every 18 -29 year old I know. Heck, I just want to recommend it to everyone. It’s not so much that this is book is piece of literary excellence; it’s good but it won’t be one of the great classics. The overall message of this story, or at least half the message, is what I “preach” to every young girl I meet who will allow me talk their ear off. It’s also partly the life I’ve actually lived.

Review: Halfway Perfect by Julie Cross and Mark Perini

I was interested in reading “Halfway Perfect” by Julie Cross and Mark Perini because I really enjoyed Ms. Cross’ book, “Third Degree” that came out last year. It was such a fun, clever, and romantic story. “Halfway Perfect” turned out to be a totally different type of story than “Third Degree” and maybe my disappointment in not getting another “Third Degree” clouded my enjoyment of this one. Ever have that happen to you? Have your expectations all set for one thing and then get served another? That’s kind of what happened to me here.

Review: Her Perfect Game by Shannyn Schroeder

This book may have very well saved my book-brain’s life. I was in rut, stuck trudging through a book with no end in sight. I’ve got worlds to discover, people’s lives to live, and love to conquer. My brain, she needed a re-boot (please excuse the speaking about body parts as separate entities – I’m reading Darynda Jones at the moment and the book spilleth over into life). I picked up some other books and two other genres didn’t fix my rut. Drastic measures were needed.

Review: Once Perfect by Cecy Robson

Once Perfect is Cecy Robson’s first story in her Shattered Past series, a new adult romance series. It’s Ms. Robson’s unique spin on the old story of the good girl and “bad” boy from the wrong side of town. It’s a story where ultimately our heroine, Evelyn (Evie) proves to Mateo that they have more in common than one would believe looking in from the outside. I really enjoyed getting to that ultimate lesson at the end of the story, it made the ride worth it.
